Reality Competition has Bounty Hunters Chasing Down Criminals
Bounty Wars (Discovery Channel - Sunday, 10pm) features both men and women, accomplished and veteran bounty hunters that include a former police officer, a part time school teacher, a former model, a former U.S. Marine, and a former correctional officer, among others, who put it all on the line to earn their compensation.
Bail amounts increase with the severity of both the crime and the flight risk of the accused; the higher the bounty the more difficult the chase, and the sweeter the payoff in the end.
The stories of the defendants are compelling and the crimes wide ranging, including felony hit and run, concealed weapons charges, meth possession, prostitution, forgery, identity theft, and robbery. Which team strategy brings in the highest bounties? Will the women team members outsmart and outperform the men on their team? It's an amazing and exciting race to the end each week.
